The Dynamics GP 2016 Roadmap and New Features


    Email | Print

    The Dynamics GP 2016 Roadmap is out and it has a few surprises I was not expecting!

    2016-Roadmap

    The first thing I notice in contrast to the previous 2015 Roadmap is that there is no more Dynamics GP 2015 R3 update scheduled, but this roadmap goes straight into Dynamics GP 2016 instead. Some of the features are also different than predicted by the GP 2015 roadmap as well. But instead of comparing the two, let us just note some of the GP 2016 features and plans for Dynamics GP 2016.

    Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Features:

    Talented Dynamics author Tim Wappat writes in his article "GP 2016, looking sweet in HTML 5"

     

    Cloud

    HTML 5 browser support
    Control for managing HTML clients (– think multi tenant management)

    Core Enhancements

    Purchasing Requisitions – Project Integration
    HTTPS Support for Management Reporter Viewer
    Multiple Page Scan
    Default EFT File Formats For Scotia Bank (!!!! why not generic format editor?)
    Change Workflow Approval Conditions
    Enable Credit card Payment  Type for Check Run Processing (yay!)
    Increase Distribution Reference Field Size
    Named User Licensing Support for Self Service User Type
    Document Attach for Project Expenses

    Business Intelligence

    All-In-One Document  Viewer for Inventory (wonderful!)
    All-In-One Document Viewer for Sales (Can’t wait!)
    Export SmartList Numbers
    Export/Import SmartLists
    Creating a SmartList from an Existing Favourite
    PowerBI charts on GP Role Center (nice)

    Ease of Use

    Remove Inactive Payroll Pay Codes (US centric thingy)
    Simplify Payroll Posting Setup
    Create Exception Report on Budget Import
    Simplify Analytical Accounting User Access Settings (more please)

     

    That looks like a lot of great features for GP 2016!! So, look for it to be out around May of 2016.
